Hello!

How do you call a person who checks if passengers in buses or trains have tickets? It is not a conductor right? Conductor is a person who conducts an orchestra.
Another question: How do you call the woman who is helping a woman to give birth? and do you say indefinite time contract or something else?

One more what is the difference between the accounts and accountancy? e.g. In charge of the accounts for the department and degree in accountancy.

    Okay, I know conductor is also a person who checks if passengers in buses or trains have tickets. Also called a ticket collecter.

    The woman/man helping a woman give birth is a MIDWIFE

    What do you mean by indefinite time contract? I can't answer that

    The accounts are a companies records and a accountancy is knowing how to keep accounts well.In charge of the accounts is the JOB and a degree in accountancy (Accounting) is the education you need to get that job.

    Does this help?

    Yes, "conductor" is correct for both uses. I have no idea why!!

    Another question: How do you call the woman who is helping a woman to give birth? doctor, nurse, nurse practitioner, midwife ??

    and do you say indefinite time contract or something else? indefinite-time contract, eternal contract, contract with no expiration date (I don't know that there's a specific term for this.)

    One more what is the difference between the accounts and accountancy? e.g. In charge of the accounts for the department and degree in accountancy.
    At this webpage -- http://www.answers.com/topic/account -- I found this:

    Random House Word Menu:
    For a list of words related to account, see:

    Banking and Financial Services - account: record of all financial transactions for specific person or entity
    Accounting - account: subdivision of basic accounting system used to record assets, liabilities, equity, sales, or expenses

    And this: http://www.answers.com/topic/accountancy-1 -- be sure to scroll down and read several specialty dictionaries' entries.
